I’ve been wanting to do a series of iconography based around byzantine gilded imagery and illuminated manuscripts. My face is just wrong for this, but I have a lovely, much more genuine model in mind for this project. Here’s a test shot where I tried messing around with a lighting setup in my room (which was not ideal.) I should probably wait until morning to post this, because my eyes will have shifted color preferences by then, but I’m impatient and want to share now. Changes might yet occur.
